Amar&Riley is the design studio of Lydia Daum. She holds a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has been a professional designer since 2007. Her work is inspired by a life-long passion for archeology, ancient art, and vintage design. She can play the accordion but can't whistle. She wears her granddad's glasses but looks just like her grandma. Lydia lives in Chicago with her husband and occasionally her neighbor's cat.
